Community Comes Together To Honor First Responders

Many law enforcement agencies responded to Mercer E.R. Saturday…. but they weren’t there to work, they were there to be appreciated.

“With everything going on today its just nice to be appreciated or feel appreciated,” says Sgt. Kelly Luther with the Victoria Police Department.

The community recognized many local agencies during Mercer E.R.’s first responder appreciation event.
Kids, even adults, were able to climb up in fire trucks and police cars for an up close look at what these first responders use every day to keep us safe.

“They put their lives on the line for us. That’s why its so important for us to be there for them and honor them and appreciate them,” Marketing Director Cindy Rodriguez says.
“They’re representatives of our community and as physicians we’re very grateful for them. So we thought it would be a great idea to do this for them,” says Mercer E.R. Physician Brett Zimmerman.

Fire Medic Nick Mosmeyer says he’s honored to be apart of a community who shows their appreciation for first responders.

“We love having the community behind us. A lot of time we see people on their worst day, and it’s nice to see them on better occasions.”
